Dr. Bragdon also co-produced another film on a center of spiritual healing that is NOT Spiritist in Brazil. She chose to remove that film from public view as the healer who was head of the center was convicted of abusing people and is now in prison. Although he could be extraordinarily good in his healing–he had an extremely dark side. If you want to learn more about this story check out several blogs Dr. Bragdon wrote on the topic: https://imhu.org/category/alternatives-to-psych-meds/spiritual-healing/john-of-god/

Spiritist Psychiatry has developed in Brazil since the 1890s. There are 50 Spiritist Psychiatric Hospitals in Brazil that offer energy work, diagnosis through medical intuitives, as well as spirit release therapy. These spiritual therapies are offered alongside the best of modern, conventional therapies.
